← Back to: "Cars Could Run on Whisky Based Biofuel"
The newly developed fuel is called butanol
"Scottish scientists at Edinburgh Napier University have developed a new whisky biofuel that can power cars, based on a formula that makes use of waste by-products left over from whisky production. They combined pot ale, which is the liquid from copper stills distillery equipment, with the spent grains used to make whisky, also known as draff, to produce butanol.
